Gear Question

Are these bindings too soft? I ride mostly...

Posted on

Are these bindings too soft? I ride mostly park, but I like to ride other stuff too. I'd say like 80% park 20% trees, groomers, pow, and whatever. I ride on the east coast to, so it's pretty icy and what not. Are these to soft for all that? Im not too worried because I ride mostly park and im used to soft bindings (burton customs), but im just curious. How do these compare to the customs in terms of flex?

I take my Contacts from park to steeps to trees and everything in between. They are a softer binder, but they will still hold you through what you wanna get through. They are a little softer than the Force's, but not by an extreme amount. I would say the Contacts are like a 2.5/5 and the Forces are like 3.5/5 in stiffness. The Force's will give you that little extra hold and support, but will still allow you to flex ur park muscles no problemo. And I dont know how they compare as I do not ride Burton, sorry bro
